Arrival of Spring – May 26

Heat

The tulips were in full splendour when I first sketched these on May 16 (first sketch below). The current heat wave has seen them quickly whither, unfortunately. They continued to whither even as I sketched their current state yesterday. Between the heat and the short downpour yesterday, this clump of daffodils looked like yellow rags on sticks.

This sketch is dedicated to my long-time Ottawa friend with whom I have visited the tulip festival in recent years. Sadly, we could not go this year.

  1. NICE!

    My fav is 3.

    Looks a little like a maiden dancing in the yellow spots of sunshine.
